  • Optional: Wargear Discipline
    • Unlock: Grenade Slot – Gain an extra grenade slot.
    • Upgrade: Ammo – Grenades gain +1 ammo.

Preferred loadout and battlefield role

  • Weapons – Psilencer; no melee weapon.
  • Armor – N/A.
  • Wargear – Lots of grenades or range/crit-boosting items.

With the above setup, your Purgator class in Warhammer 40K: Chaos Gate – Daemonhunters should be able to provide decent firepower to blast opponents. The Psilencer is ideal for single-target disruption, as well as wide-area coverage with Scattershot. Sadly, because the Psilencer doesn’t have overwatch, you’ll primarily rely on the Support Fire perk, which lets you gun down an enemy that’s being shot by an ally. This can be used in conjunction with an Interceptor that also has Support Fire, so multiple units can shred the same mob.

Another option is to acquire grenade-focused perks. With more grenades, you can cause extra AoE damage, armor-shredding, and knockback.
